City’s celebration of 50th no midlife crisis

Burnsville turns 50 in June, and has produced a video to celebrate.

The city was incorporated on June 18, 1964 as the Village of Burnsville.

From modest beginnings it now boasts more than 60,000 residents and 2,600 businesses.

The animated video, viewable online, recalls how “it all stems from a battle over a happy little power plant named Black Dog,” in the words of city officials.

To see it, go to YouTube and search for “Burnsville became city.”
